So this year’s Sundance Film Festival didn’t just yield one must-see summer indie (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl).
It brought about three.
The Diary of a Teenage Girl is one of the other two.
The film is a coming-of-age story helmed by actress-writer-director Marielle Heller and starring on-the-brink British actress Bel Powley, a San Francisco teen living and learning in the 1970s, that was based on the 2002 graphic novel by Phoebe Gloeckner. And the thick of the story revolves around Minnie losing her virginity to her young mother’s (Kristen Wiig) bf, hotly portrayed by Alexander Skarsgård.
The Diary of a Teenage Girl will be out on Aug. 7. Check out the trailer for the surrealistic offering now.
